The total footage in this film was
derived from four different amateur cameras in Banda Aceh, and is
thus not the intellectual property of the BBC.
The British editors
have cleverly strung the four individual clips together to create
the misleading illusion that the "earthquake" and "tsunami" were in
reality a single traumatic event lasting more than two minutes, with
buildings crumbling everywhere while the ocean crushes the poor
Not only this, but the editors have also slipped later frames into
the earlier part of the footage, thereby subliminally suggesting
that the buildings were wrecked by the 'earthquake' BEFORE the tidal
wave overwhelmed the town. These frames can be easily identified by
perceptive viewers who care to pinpoint water under and around the
These frames were shot after the first wave hit Banda Aceh,
but before the second much larger wave.
This is entirely deceitful. The "Richter 9.3 Earthquake" (NOAA) in
actuality onlyshook Banda Aceh for a total of 13 seconds, with
aftershocks at all during the following 22 minutes, until the giant
tidal wave appeared out of nowhere, killing everyone in sight. As
the real 13-second sequence on the main page shows, the alleged
'earthquake'killed no one and caused no property damage, apart from
a power cut which disabled the elevators in the Kuala Tripa Hotel.
By direct comparison, the San Francisco Earthquake of April 18, 1906
was a 'mere' 7.9 on the Richter Scale, but nonetheless caused severe
vibrations for a total of 67 seconds (48 +11 + 8), because it was a
real earthquake generating transverse shear waves. As thousands of
old photographs will attest, these violent Californian transverse
shear waves in 1906 caused structural damage and death as far away
The Sumatran event captured by the Indonesian Padang seismic station
(shown below), is a very good example of the massive single
compression wave recorded after an underground nuclear blast.
sole remaining question is which New York Nutcase ordered the
operation, and the deaths of nearly half a million innocent people -
mostly Muslims of course...
